The Community Action Club is a student-run club with Mr. Frantz as the advisor at Cumberland Valley High School. Members of the Community Action club find problems that occur in the high school and work towards solving them as a team.

“The latest problem the kids are working on is what they call the ‘toxic grade culture’ problem," Frantz said.

Sophomore club president Aman Mulla described the problem by saying that students are too focused on their grades, ranks, and their overall performance in higher level classes that are IB, AP, or honors.

Kids are so desperate to get good grades that they are willing to cross lines that they may have never crossed before. For example, cheating has been the latest talk for the Community Action Club, and they are looking for ways to prevent it.

Students cheat because they are pressured to receive decent marks. This club meets twice a month in room 120 to discuss and implement methods to control this dilemma.

Community Action is a new addition to the various clubs at CV and already has several members and leadership positions. Sophomore, Noah Lape is the VP-Co leader, sophomore Lindsay George is the secretary, sophomore
Owen Reeves is the spokesperson, sophomore Ary Chauhan is the public affairs head, and sophomore Rushil Negandhi is the research head.

This club continues to improve and develop as the year progresses. They are looking for more members. If are interested in solving and finding solutions for students at CV, contact Mr. Frantz in room 120 to find out more information.
